Christmas Video Card – The Perrin’s

Perrin Family Christmas Video - Big Box Pro

A few years backs we had our first child and wanted to make a family video in place of sending out a snail mail card. We had a success and went on to produce another. We found it hard to keep up and failed to complete one for a few years.

Here is the 2009 Edition::

So now in 2015 we had a plan ready to shoot during the Thanksgiving break. We had hurdles and ear aches and work. So the Eve of Christmas Eve everything aligned and we started to shoot.

The Shoot

8pm – We setup the opening scene first. Family band super fun time.
Next is mad dad. That would be me pissed and not wanting carolers at my door. We shot two shots and combined them in the edit. We jumped to the outdoor “wrap dad in lights” shoot. We did that on Caramel Parkway. On the way from that shoot we shot the “Dad trapped in Car” shot.

11:15pm – Once we arrived at Mr. Bills Christmas Wonderland. We covered baby Jesus and then moved on to glitter beard.

Mr. Tripod helped us shoot family shots and then we were off to the house. Once back home we started the real fun… slow motion. In November we started up Big Box Pro Motion. This is our slow motion photo booth. We used it to create a sub story in parallel with making dad turn happy.

So at 2am we put the kids down and started the edit. In the next 4 hours we had the edit you see today.

This project was such a blast. I want to thank my family for putting up with the mess of the shoot. The kids seem to love it. I hope to have one ready for 2016.

Merry Christmas with the family

Christmas time is here

This year we hosted the Perrin Family Christmas party at our home.  I don’t think I have ever cleaned so much in my entire life.  Three days straight we worked at getting the house presentable for our friends and family.  That night dinner was Casbeers enchiladas.  If you are unfamiliar, Casbeers is a hole in the wall folk music hideout in San Antonio, Texas.  After our traditional gift exchange we had a white elephant exchange.  Kendra was the proud winner of the Fish Alert.  For those unfamiliar, for the last six years this so called Fish Alert, fishing aid, has been a part of the family white elephant exchange.  This year just happen to be our turn.  After that night we went out to the lake house so we would be there and ready to open presents on Christmas morning.  I got a gun and a guitar for Christmas…  not to bad of a year.  On Christmas afternoon we packed up our three dogs and headed to San Angelo, Texas to visit with Kendra’s parents for a few days.  We will head back to Corpus for Kendra’s second doctors appointment on the 28th.  Wish us luck.

Merry Christmas

Derrick & Kendra
